Paste Named Ranges in Formula

I am a strong proponent for using Named Cell Ranges when creating Excel Formulas. But what if you have already created formulas – formulas that use cell references. How do you insert or apply a newly created named range into an existing Excel Formula?

Simple answer – watch this short video to see me demonstrate how this is done.

Better answer:

Follow These Steps

  1. Activate in-cell formula editing by either double-clicking the formula cell or using the Keyboard Shortcut F2.
  2. Highlight the cell reference that you wish to replace with a named range.
  3. Choose the Name from the “Use in Formulas” drop-down menu. You can also use the F3 Keyboard Shortcut to open the Paste Names Dialog Box.
  4. Repeat these steps to complete replacing additional cell references with named cell ranges.
